So basically if you want to turn at high speeds just hold protect puck button(A on 360, X on PS3) and it voids the wide turns..

It's probably going to be the same as every year. The demo will be okay and filled with a lot of problems that EA has already fixed because this demo is from months ago.

It's pretty different that's for sure.

I'm sure I'll feel the same I do every year though.

The game will be hard to score and I'll get used to it and it will become easy as heck.

Likes:

- Presentation for the most part (sometimes the players look really awkward, but I'm sure they'll fix that. I like the close up shots of the players after the whistles.

- Variety of goals, it's way harder to score on a one timer, more rebound goals and goals you wouldsee in the NHL.

- Goalies are better

- Passing is harder

Dislikes:

- Skating doesn't look very realistic (mainly during speedburst) , hope they can touch it up a bit

- Hip check is still ridiculous

- I found the shadows on the payers and other things in the rink to be a bit to heavy compared to NHL 12.

Overall I like what they have done with this game, and it definitely looks a lot better than nhl 12.

It's times like this I wish I was unemployed.

Then NHL13 would be released and I'd say "It's times like this I wish I had a job."

I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

I love it, the skating is everything i wished for, non of that unrealistic dancing around. Goalies are waaay easier to snipe out tho, however its difficult to get in the slot and its a little harder to set up the point. Playing as a goalie is way easier this year compared ti the other ones. Im excited for eashl this year more than ever.

Funny thing happened that I hadn't seen before: Puck gets chopped up into the air, and Kovalchuk reaches for it with his hand to grab it. Unfortunately, he missed it, and the puck ends up hitting him in the head, and then it does a little animation of him holding his head like it hurt. :lol: It was funny because the puck had no velocity on it, just falling from the air. I wish I could have watched a replay.

I noticed there is an in the net cam, I think that's new?

The net dislodged, and it went to the in the net cam and it was just pointing out to the side. I like how it realized the net was off. Lol.


I just poked the puck loose with Scuderi and went on a breakaway, and Scuderi fell over while I turned. :lol:


Some of the goalie saves are unbelievable. What I'm thinking is, they are probably amazing right now but once I play the game a lot it will just get annoying. I hope it doesn't make the people who suck get wins.

Is it just me or do the goalies stand up to much? Obviously Brodeur is old school so that's cool that he does, but with Quick it is kind of stupid. I hope Luongo or Schneider don't do that.

!@#$%^&*( that!

I made it all the way to Team USA, it's tied through the whole game. Patrick Kane goes into my zone and slaps it from the blue line and scores. He could have had a breakaway too.

Also it seems as though i can't get into Overtime in the demo. My first game I scored with 6 seconds left and it was a pretty weak goal and i won, than the last game I played they scored with 4 seconds left at the top of the circle, five hole with no screen.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Alright, so I haven't been able to play the game because I wont be home until tomorrow, but from what you guys are saying, it seems like it's a better game than NHL12, but there still are glaring holes. Am I right?

who's looking for nhl 13 club players(360)? i usually play a power forward wing (that might change given the huge speed changes from '12) and can also play centre... no kid clubs, i work all day and like to come on to drama-free hockey and pile up some wins.
